When our pets age, their central nervous system displays a loss of neurons, brain atrophy and a calcification of the meninges (Head, 2001 ; Roudebush & al, 2005). Most of the atrophy occurs in the cortex. There is a correlation between cortical atrophy and cognitive problems (Rofina & al, 2006) in both humans and dogs (Du & al, 2005 ; Ezekiel & al, 2004). Deposits of platelets of amyloid-beta peptides are also observed. These deposits increase with age and are linked to the severity of the cognitive deficiency (Colle & al, 2000). These amyloid-beta platelets are neurotoxic and compromise normal neuron function. There are also a great many vascular and peri-vascular changes. These can restrict blood flow and the supply of essential nutrients (Gerlach & al, 1994 ; Araujo & al, 2002). As the brain ages, it is less able to fight oxidative stress, a cause of neuron malfunction (Kiaipattanasakul & al, 1997 ; Head & al, 2002). All these tissue changes explain the decline of cognitive function, disorientation, memory loss, disturbance of the day/night cycles and withdrawal.
The nutritional components of Miloa Anti-Ageing TM work together to optimise the well-being of pets that are showing signs of ageing (disorientation, memory loss and lower energy levels), sustain psychological and cognitive acquisition, and support the memory and physical abilities.
Blackcurrant, bilberry, co-enzyme Q10 and vitamin E are powerful antioxidants that neutralise free radicals.
